Certificates of Fronius International

PRODUCTION AT FRONIUS: HIGH QUALITY, EFFICIENT AND SUSTAINABLE

As far as Fronius is concerned, quality, sustainability and safety in the workplace are not just buzzwords: they are a central component of our corporate culture. This is why Fronius has been awarded

  • ISO 9001
  • ISO 14001
  • ISO 45001 (formerly OHSAS 18001)

certification and commits to the important standards for environmental protection and safety. 

PRODUCTION PROCESSES AND ORGANISATION

  • We manufacture on a client order-specific basis, offer standardised delivery classes and generally dispatch products within three days.
  • Our production logistics are organised according to the Kanban principle, a special scheduling system that guarantees short supply cycles and minimal work in progress.
  • Lean management and standardisation ensure that we are constantly improving our highly efficient production facilities.

SUSTAINABILITY AND WORKPLACE SAFETY ON THE PRODUCTION LINE

  • Sustainability lies at the heart of everything we do. This is reflected not just in our products, but also in the production of individual components. Together we are making a contribution to conserving resources and improving quality of life.
  • The health and safety of our employees and service providers is of particular importance to us. We therefore implement the strictest safety standards in every one of the company's manufacturing facilities.
